The Kalinago People of Dominica, Our Lives in Words and Pictures...
Irvince Auguiste’s project at Touna Village in the Carib Territory (see post below) is part of his efforts at promoting the regeneration of Kalinago culture. An earlier project he spearheaded as Chief of the Carib Council, Yet We Survive, gathered photographs, interviews, testimonies and sound recordings by young Caribs living in the Territory for a traveling exhibit. These materials have been brought together in a book published jointly by Papillote Press in Dominica and Ian Randle Publishers in Jamaica. The book is now used in classrooms throughout the Territory to teach young Kalinago children about their unique history and culture. It offers a rich collection of photographs, artwork by Kalinago children, and testimonies, and is a most valuable record of how the Carib people see themselves at this juncture in history.
The book Yet We Survive is available from Papillote Gardens
